Kuwait dedicated to youth improvement: PM

KUWAIT CITY, March 10 (Xinhua) — The Kuwait’s government is committed to the development of youth, the Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said on Sunday.

He made the remarks at a meeting, organized by the National Youth Project of Kuwait and attended by youth entrepreneurs of Kuwait at Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center in Kuwait City, capital of Kuwait.

He called on the youth to give rein to their energy and zest for life in order to realize their aspirations, affirming his readiness to listen to the thoughts and suggestions of the youth, meet their needs and remove any obstacles facing their aspirations for success.

“The Kuwaiti youths have to invest in their age, which is full of energy and zest, to realize their aspirations and dreams,” he noted.

Youssef Al-Ibrahim, advisor at the Amiri Diwan, noted that the National Youth Project aims at introducing Kuwait Vision 2035 to the youths.

The National Youth Project was initiated in 2012 to engage Kuwaiti youths as key participants in youth development.

Kuwait Vision 2035 is a national development plan designed to introduce a change in Kuwait’s oil-reliant economic structure and transform the oil-rich Gulf state into a trade and financial hub by 2035. The strategic plan involves over 160 projects and invites foreign investment.
